another year has come and gone


Twenty six what a wild ride you have been. You have been less than what I expected but yet so much more that I thought you would ever be. 

At 26 I:
lived with 2 girls went to Bayfield, WI (twice) ; said goodbye to my job of almost 3 years ; started a new job ; grew closer to friends ; moved back in with the parents *temporarily* ; realized that I still don't understand balance hosted fun apartment events  ; started co-leading my women's small group ; fell more in love with Minnesota ; bought my first pair of mocassins ; still do not know how to not procrastinate ; bought a DSLR ; walked around Minnesota lakes ; started drinking regular coffee ; visited 2 multi-cultral museums in Minnesota (Russian & Swedish) ; must remember always, always read a recipe entirely through before I start the process ; did not wear as many dresses/skirts as I thought I would ; became more addicted to coffee  finally visited southern Minnesota  ; lived through the craziest season of weather in my life ; shoveled out my car twice from huge snow falls  ; continued to see Gods' faithfulness and truth all around me ;

Twenty seven I am not quite sure what you will bring. Whatever it is may God prepare me. 


  1. I definitely made a recipe for 16 this past fall because I didn't read it completely!!!! ha ha oops... hope you had a wonderful birthday celebration :) Sorry I wasn't able to make it.

  2. Happy 27th Birthday! What a great way to reflect on your past year and remember special events. I have a DSLR camera that I'm still trying to figure out how to use. I also need to read recipes all the way through before I start--lesson I had to learn the hard way, too :) The last part is my favorite--seeing God's faithfulness and truth. Blessings!
